Curried Cardinal

I don't know how and why, but my style evolved somewhat over the last few days... :P
Although I must admit that I'm more than pleased with the way things turn... I might have just learnt a few tricks along the way (finally!)
I'm bringing you my first card today, that I made for the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #43:


I know it's quite unusual to combine a Holiday theme with the flowery DP, but firstly this lovely paper suited the current Colour Throwdown perfectly, and secondly, I thought - what the heck, I'm going to give this one a little twist! :)
The challenge colours are: Only Orange, Real Red, Crushed Curry, and some dark neutral. I've got quite a few of these neutrals here lol!
I think this is a nice, warm and thoroughly Christmassy card, and the flowers don't look bizarre at all :)
The sentiment is a digi, and it was a gift from Just Us Girls for taking part in their challenge. Yay ladies! I printed it in orange on white paper, and added a regular stamp in Grant Archival Yellow (it is much darker than the actual yellow colour would be, in fact it's very much like Crushed Curry - talk about accuracy lol!)
I double-popped up the middle panel on dimensionals, and embellished the card with a simple red ribbon and a charm in the shape of a bell.

Thank you so much for stopping by today, see you again soon!
